I am writing this letter in support of Dan Butterman’s candidacy for the Otsego County Board of Representatives for the town of Oneonta. I had the pleasure to meet Dan recently and was impressed by his belief that making progress or finding solutions, collaboration and building consensus are of the utmost importance. Dan’s background in insurance has supplied him with many opportunities to work with adversarial groups to reach decisions that are acceptable to all.
Dan and his family are new to the area, but Dan is not new to public service. He has a history of service to the community through youth organizations and support for various nonprofit organizations. As a new resident of the town, Dan is interested in helping both the town and county find solutions to problems that offer long-term solutions.
If you want a county representative to listen to your concerns, offer thoughtful suggestions and follow through, you need to vote for Dan Butterman on Nov. 5 for Otsego County representative for the town of Oneonta.
